Ok so as people that “Follow” me on Twitter will know. Over the past week I have been sorting out all the stuff at The Lass and some thing came to me.

What ever happened to consoles that could share the same cables? Not talking about the power cables as they are different, talking about the pads.

What of those 9-pin joysticks? They where great. If yours broke you could just go and buy a new 9-pin. Heck you could even buy a Mega Drive pad and use that on a Atari (For those that dont like holding some thing that’s shaped like a penis).

(I mean look at some of them)

(They really do look like a penis)

(Just don’t google “Penis Joystick”)

(Your going to aren’t you?)

(You dirty fecker)

Well the connector slides into the hole nice and snug, but try that with a Nintendo consoles. It don’t fit do it? Nintendo had to be different, but then there’s more than just a few fire buttons on it. There’s them awkwardly place select and start buttons. Now days some of these consoles do have the same connection (USB), but wont work cross platform and its understandable as they all have different things on them and have come a long way from one button one stick.(Shaped like a penis)

Thanks for reading.

APRIL FOOL! Oh its after midday

What ever happened to “Good” funny April fools jokes? I mean like in games mags. Its alive and well online with all those ruining Duke Nukem Forever coming out jokes (Or even Duke Comes out?). I remember they used to be funny. Like with the Ultimate Fighting Universe (Still a better idea than Street fighter x Tekken) and Iznogood.....oh wait that was a real game.

I was going to do one online this year, but with all this time zone crap.

Maybe the death of Computer and Video games mag has led to them fizzling out and that is a shame as I loved the letters page the following month of people failing to spot it or even getting the wrong one (Yes there is a game called Iznogood and surprisingly it is no good, but what do you expect ITS FRENCH! The only decent thing that was animated that came out of France was Asterix).

But I did see one that was kinda obvious on Tokyo Toshokan where it has a splash screen saying that the FBI have taken it off line

So I was looking round for some this year and found none. Maybe us net heads are wiser to it.

I am your moaning sod thanks for reading.
